BBQ grilled radish

Side Serves 4 15 min
Radishes are almost always served raw, but we often roast, braise or BBQ them on the farm when we have a glut. The heat softens the hot peppery notes, but take care to avoid overcooking; their slight bite is part of the charm.

Cook's notes

Cooking them on skewers makes them easier to turn, and stops the smaller specimens from disappearing between the bars.


  • 200g radishes
  • olive oil
  • salt and pepper

Prep time: 5 min
Cooking time: 10 min
  • Step 1

    Keep the small radishes whole, but cut any large radishes in half so they are all roughly even in size.
  • Step 2

    Place the radishes in a bowl and baste with a drizzle of olive oil and season liberally with salt and pepper.
  • Step 3

    Carefully skewer the radishes onto skewers and place them directly on the bars of a preheated BBQ.
  • Step 4

    Cook them for 5-6 mins, turning often until lightly coloured and starting to soften.
  • Step 5

    Eat straight from the skewer or slide them off and slice straight into a salad or side.
